So, items like the forks and transmission cover would be ridiculously expensive to black-out, due to difficulty in removing/disassembling them... but here's a mockup of what I think can be blacked out within budget... http://photo.ricecop.com/pics/vtx_blackout.jpg

[edit] Oh, also included the new turn signals... removing the stock ones that stick out and replacing them with LEDs that wrap around the forks, which also double as white driving lights when not flashing amber. The headlight will also be replaced with an LED unit for better visibility.

#41, Not bad. It's better not to black out all that chrome anyway; that would've been overkill. A nice mix of black and chrome trim suits the bike best, IMO.

Black painting and powder coating of various components is chugging right along... getting custom work on a motorcycle done is not a fast process... blacking-out the pipes is apparently not easy nor cheap... so I'm considering just getting a new set of aftermarket black pipes... considering these in black: http://www.freedomperform.com/produ...into-1-vtx1800/ I would, of course, leave the baffles IN... I am not a loud pipes person.

Went to take a look at the bike... it's maybe one or two items away from being done... fingers crossed I'll have it next weekend.

The new exhaust, I'm so glad I opted for the quiet baffles, as, even with them installed, those pipes are most definitely louder than stock... the shop owner told me they ran the bike without the baffles, and, even though it sounded EPIC, the noise and vibration actually caused a sign to fall off a nearby wall.

But the black finish on the pipes is fantastic, and the components that have also been blacked out really set off the bike. I'm glad I'm retaining *some* chrome, as it provides a nice visual balance. I've seen totally-blacked-out bikes, and they sometimes look monotonous.
